Bring Out Your Dead Vote

Untitled document

Jonathan Adler, posting at the Volokh Conspiracy, notes an analysis by the Poughkeepsie Journal that shows a rather large and active group of dead voters in New York State. Oddly, dead Democratic voters are more able to get to the polls than dead Republican voters. Who'd a thunk.

An analysis of state-wide records by the Poughkeepsie Journal reveals that 77,000 dead people remain on election rolls in New York State, and some 2,600 may have managed to vote after they had died. The study also found that Democrats are more successful at voting after death than Republicans, by a margin of four-to-one, largely because so many dead people seem to vote in Democrat-dominated New York City.

Now, this is not to say that the dead are actually going to the polls. Unless Baron Samedi has decided to enter politics in a big way, of course. But either someone is voting for them, or they are incorrectly listed as dead – but vote anyway. One way or the other, there is obviously a problem.

Of course, if the Baron has entered politics, we have an even bigger problem of an entirely different sort, haven't we?

    I am not sure whether this news should cause me to rethink my religious affiliation or my party affliation.

  3. Gaius says:

    Don’t go giving them ideas! I can see the slogans now: Vote Democrat and live forever! (or at least vote!)

  4. RM says:

    I’m not sure what’s worse – the rise of the walking dead, or the fact that they overwhelmingly vote Democrat.

  5. George Bruce says:

    We shouldn’t be too surprised, however. What else do you expect from someone whose brain is rotting?
